Uzbekistan Telecommunications and Broadband Reports

Uzbekistan Telecoms, Mobile, Broadband, Statistics and Analysis
Coming into 2016 the Uzbekistan telecom sector was looking to make a fresh start after the difficulties of the 2012/2014 period. MTS Uzbekistan, the number one ranked operator that had its licence revoked back in 2012, had re-entered the market and was already playing an active role again. Operating as Universal Mobile Systems (UMS), the former MTS was now in a joint venture with the government. There was no doubt that the return of MTS was improving the outlook for the local mobile and mobile broadband market.

Broadband, ICT and Consumer E-Commerce in Uzbekistan

June 2016 Review

Uzbek internet users are enjoying cheaper and faster access than they have ever known. Starting August 1, the maximum internet speed in Uzbekistan reached 11.8 Gbps. "The process is rapidly unfolding," Sherzod Shermatov, deputy chairman of the State Committee for Communication, Informatisation and Telecommunication Technologies, said. "During the past six months, speeds have increased by a whole 15%."

Internet speeds in Uzbekistan have increased almost six-fold during the past 10 years, according to Netindex.com. From an average 0.46 Mbps in 2004, the figure has grown to 2.94 Mbps in August, 2014.

Uzbekistan and most of its Asian neighbors also have a clear desire to tap the power of information and communication technology (ICT) to improve education and provide students with the skills they will need to compete later in life. Many have anchored the adoption of ICT into their education development strategies.

Uzbekistan is the
Asian Development Bank (ADB) largest client in the region by the number of loans, and its 14th largest borrower by volume. Overall, Uzbekistan is the 15th largest shareholder among ADB regional members. In its latest Education Sector Report, ADB recommends more emphasis on more responsive investment in ICT, and in science and technology. Education systems in the region can be radically improved through intelligent use of innovative ICT, appropriate training for teachers and sector managers, and support to centers that nurture new ideas.

A US$30 million loan to Uzbekistan - approved in 2005, and the first ADB loan devoted entirely to integrating ICT into basic education - underscores this point well. The loan advances ADB's efforts at improving the application of ICT - which in the past have suffered from a lack of capacity within many school systems for handling computer technology - by putting special emphasis on training teachers and other staff to use ICT for learning, and encouraging the establishment of learning centers.

Along with better Internet access, the national .uz top-level domain is developing. About 18,000 Uzbek websites existed at the start of 2014. In 2009, only 9,000 domain names had been registered comments Eldar Mirsaliyev, spokesman for UzInfoCom, the state-owned Computerisation and Information Technologies Developing Center.
